Now, with less metal!

The boy had an ortho appointment tonight. And the ortho guy suprised us by saying that he thinks we're done with what we needed to do. And he took the braces off!

Here are the new and improved teeth.

And here's the stash of goodies I bought him on the way home. Gum, more gum, Skittles, Twix, Kit Kat with Caramel, and Swedish Fish. He's been deprived of sticky, chewy goodies for 6 months, so I thought I'd treat him. He won't be eating it all in one day. I hope.

We still need to go back in a few weeks to get fitted for a retainer. And later, when the rest of his teeth come in (which happens late in our family) he'll need braces all over again. But for now, he's free!

Wow... look at those gorgeous pearly whites! I'm so excited for the J man!

And, I almost just fell off my chair when I saw that "the boy" is working a wee m'stache there.

Yeah, the moustache took me aback too. Damn! They grow up fast, don't they?

What a nice surprise!

What are Swedish Fish like? I've never heard of them before.

Yeah, he's actually been rocking a little mustache for a few years now. And in the past year or so it's really coming in more. I don't know what the hell happened to my little baby. He's five feet of long hair, glasses and 'stache!

Bradi, Swedish Fish are kind of like Gummy Bears, chewy, but with a different flavor. I can't describe the's just Swedish Fish flavor.
